Picked these up as part of a package deal. I have never seen them before and was wondering if anyone else has? Its a six piece kit including; trim for the front fenders, the doors and the rear lower quarters.

GT/SE moldings with a Fiero sticker.
You'd also need the matching rocker cover.

I have all the pieces. What year did they come on or are they aftermarket? Do they lay over top of the door moldings or in place of the molding?

They're factory pieces and come on 1984 Indy, 1985 GT, 1986 - 1988 GT, and 1986 - 1987 aero SE trim levels.

If the car does not already have the ground effects kit installed then no they do not lay over the stock body pieces.

The lower long piece - that you do not have - attaches to the lower side of the door sill and under the front and rear quarters (where the non-aero pieces attach). To installed that main piece onto a car without them you'd have to completely remove the lower sill piece.

The front fender, door, and rear quarter pieces have holes drilled into them from the factory to accept the studs that secure the pieces from the inside. On cars without these you have to drill the holes, but you would be going off of no readily accessible measure points other that placing the pieces onto the body work and marking where the studs hit.

Most individuals when they secure a ground effects kit usually try to get the accompanying fender, door, and rear quarter skins as well, since this makes installation a whole lot easier.

Ok, there seems to be a bit of confusion here. I know what ground effects are and how they attach to our vechicles as I have four fieros at the moment. These are thin sheets of polished steel with "Fiero" imprinted on them, not a decal. The panels have a rubbery adheasive on the back of them similar to the material that hold emblems on cars. I have never seen these before and was curious if anyone what year and model they came on or were they aftermarket.

Those types of accessories were popular for a while, so I would think they are from places like the JC Whitney catalog....

Look at the pieces he has.. They look like they are aluminum or stainless.. They look like they are made to be fixed to the original factory plastic molding or lower panels (coupe) using some form of molding tape.

Those are not factory. They attach to your factory stuff or they affix to the coupe lower panels.

My thoughts as well. I figured if they were factory the font would be in line with what is on the rear deck lid. I have not had the time to compare them to the door panel portion of the ground effects but my first impression is they are to wide to fit over top of the existing panels. Leading me to believe they were made as an accent piece for coupes. That being said I have a nice 84 2M4 I'll probably throw them on, if I can get them to clean up nice.

I had a 1989 Eagle Premier that had those stainless panels along the rocker. Somebody figured out they could laser cut a bunch of patterns and sell them to dealers. They slapped them on the cars with double-stick tape. They held up well.

I think better pictures and description from the OP would have helped
